Weingarten: No trust or confidence due to chaos, lack of resources

AFT President Randi Weingarten and former Secretary of Education Arne Duncan were guests Sept. 7 on MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes” to discuss the patchwork school reopenings across the United States.

If Duncan was still the education secretary, he would have “pulled people together to have plans and have resources” for safe reopenings, Weingarten said to host Hayes. But due to “the recklessness and with the chaos and with the lack of resources” under the current leadership, “what happened is there is no confidence and no trust,” she added.

Weingarten also said people are “agonized” because “we know how much this hurts kids. The issue is we can’t pit life versus learning.”
